Red Cap

Red Cap is created by Emmy and Golden Globe nominee Patrick Harbinson, whose credits include ER and Soldier Soldier. An intelligent and original contemporary series which pushes the boundaries of the crime drama genre, Red Cap focuses on Jo McDonagh, a tough-talking, uncompromising member of the Army's elite Special Investigation Branch (SIB).

The SIB is charged with one of the most sensitive and demanding of all military jobs: the investigation of serious crimes committed by or against members of the British Army.

The SIB is a man's world. Douglas Hodge co-stars as Jo's tough and cynical boss, Sergeant Major Burns; James Thornton plays Staff Sergeant Roper, whose frostiness for Jo is beginning to melt away, albeit slowly; and Gordon Kennedy is the understanding team player, Sergeant Hornsby. In the face of such colleagues, Jo's desire to impress and succeed is even more acute. Having proven her detective skills, if not her diplomacy, in the pilot episode, she was summarily demoted for her maverick approach to serious crime solving.
